By the same director as The Spirit of the Beehive, this film is ‘an unfinished drama that’ s perfect the way it is.‘  Hailed as a masterpiece it deals with the relationship between Estrella, a young girl, and her father.  We witness through her eyes attempts to learn more about her parents‘ past, lost in the shadows cast by the civil war.  With the help of old letters and servants‘ gossip she eventually discovers truths that still haunt the present.
